        Our Mutual Friend

      London: Chapman and Hall [1896] - CROWN EDITION, in scarce original printed DUST-WRAPPER. Octavo, pp.x; 683; [1], blank. Publisher's russet-coloured buckram blocked in gilt and black, complete with rare paper jacket. With forty illustrations by Martin Stone. One of the author's most famous tales, issued as part of the 'Dickens Crown Edition' which was published between 1896-1899. Internally clean, gilt to spine tarnished else cloth is bright and fresh; fragile jacket with some chips and tears, neatly stabilised to reverse side with archival tape, losses to spine ends and joints, toned to same. A remarkable survival of a nineteenth century dustwrapper on a popular title by a major author. Rare thus. 'Our Mutual Friend,' written in the years 1864-65, is the last completed novel written by Charles Dickens, and concerns money, and what money can make of life. Preceding Dickens' final crime-based work 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood', this novel also features elements of intrigue and suspense; John Harmon, a wealthy young heir, is supposed drowned and in a case of mistaken identity his estate is passed to Boffin, a former servant of his father. John must infiltrate the Boffin household and gain their trust and friendship in order to regain his fortune. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Bradley, His Book, A Complete Run, Vol. 1, No. 1 (May 1896) to Vol. 2, No. 3 (February 1897)

      Wayside Press (Springfield, MA) 1896 - Tall octavos/Quartos. VG+ with general light wear, a few chips to spines, and the usual chips to overhangs. Will Bradley was at the height of his fame when he decided to issue his own magazine. No other periodical better reflects the artistry of the 1890s than does Bradley, His Book. In fact, it is surely the most beautiful magazine produced up to its time. Each issue features dozens of pages of Bradley’s beautiful artwork, which adorns the covers, the contents, and the advertisements. They also contain attractively illustrated appraisals of the work of contemporary artists JC Leyendecker, Edward Penfield, Maxfield Parrish, and Ethel Reed, prose contributions from Bradley, Percival Pollard, Richard Harding Davis, and others, plus poetry and book reviews. Ulrich called BHB, “A fine monument to a great phase of the ‘modern’ book.” This is a lovely, legendary magazine. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        THROUGH JUNGLE AND DESERT, Travels in Eastern Africa

      London and New York: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., 1896. First edition, the London issue, printed and bound from the American sheets with title-page imprint reversed. A note in the books states that this copy was bought directly from the author's grandson. Profusely illustrated throughout based on photographs taken from the author, and with one (of two) of the large folding maps that are so frequently missing from the pocket at the end. So many copies have less than the two maps called for that one suspects they weren't always inserted in every book. Thick 8vo, publishers original navy cloth, with gilt vignette of a lion's head on the upper cover, gilt lettering to the spine, t.e.g. xiv, 535 pp. An unusually nice copy, the cloth in fine shape with almost no wear and only a light touch of mellowing to the spine panel, still very handsome, the hinges a bit shaken but strong and holding firmly, the text block quite bright and well preserved, solid and sturdy, unobtrusive evidence of old damp to the lower gutter, beginning in the final third of the book and reaching the text only in the final quarter, in all cases very mild. RARE FIRST EDITION OF A PRIMARY AFRICAN WORK. The work includes a good deal of material on travel and exploration in Africa and is also a very important work on "big game hunting in Eastern Africa. [The] author hunted exhaustively and saw many new species, one of which was named for him. He traveled with Lt. Von Höhnel and had the same guide as Sir Samuel Baker. [Much of his] hunting was between the Tana and Juba rivers. The work is considered one of the finest reading books on African hunting and travelling." - Ellen Enzler. From a long line of eminent New York families, the author was a soldier, explorer, and politician who later served as U.S. Representative from New York. He was a friend of Teddy Roosevelt, who he thanks in the preface. He spent three years in Africa and became a fellow of the American Geographical Society, the Royal Geographical Society and the Imperial and Royal Geographical Society of Austria.

The armorial binding on the cover is that of Henry Arthur Johnstone, who was a well known book collector in the late 1800's. The armorial design has the initials "H.A.J." and a pair of crossed swords. Additionally, the leather bookplate had a gilt stamped design of a ship with the name "Henry Arthur Johnstone" and the year "1899". Johnstone's library was important at the time and was sold en bloc to a London bookseller in 1921, with several of his books now held in the Folger library. Described by Wells as "an exercise in youthful blasphemy", the Island of Doctor Moreau is a very early science fiction novel about a mad scientist who creates human-like hybrid beings

        Études d'économie sociale. (Théorie de la répartition de la richesse sociale.)

      Lausanne & Paris: F. Rouge, F. Pichon, 1896 - Octavo (208 x 140 mm). Contemporary blue half cloth, titles to spine gilt, dark blue boards. Early Italian library stamp to front pastedown; ownership signature to half-title in light pencil. Spine rubbed, faint stain to front board, contents slightly toned. A very good copy. 3 diagrams, one folding. First edition of one of Walras's major contributions to his economico-social doctrine, based on lectures which he held at the University of Lausanne during the years of 1870 through 1892. "As far as pure theory is concerned, Walras is in my opinion the greatest of all economists" (Schumpeter in: Blaug, Great economists before Keynes, p. 264). In this work, as well as in his Etudes d'Economie politique appliquée (1898), Walras's main interest in pure theory (which he had earlier presented in Eléments d'Economie politique pure, 1874-77), shifted to issues of applied economics and social economics which actually was a revival of the activity he began when he was young.

        AN OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS

      1896. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1896. 1 page preliminary undated ads. Original dark green cloth. First Edition of Conrad's second book, preceded only by (and containing many of the same characters as) ALMAYER'S FOLLY. After Edward Garnett (then a reader at Unwin's) had "discovered" Conrad and helped him get his first book published, he worked very closely with Conrad on this one -- so much so that some biographers have suggested that Garnett's name should have appeared on the title page as co-author. OUTCAST is considered the middle volume of Conrad's only trilogy; the third volume, which he began right after OUTCAST but could not complete for almost a quarter of a century, was ultimately published in 1920 as THE RESCUE.~This is an unusually bright copy, essentially without wear, fine except for a couple of very faint front cover marks. The number of copies issued is not known, but in this condition this book has become rather scarce. Cagle A2a.1.

Ink stamp "Histologie/ Collège de France" on front wrapper. Ink call no. on front wrapper. Marginal browning of text leaves. Mostly unopened. Very Good. Entire issue offered. First Edition "Methylene Blue in the Nerve Centers." In his autobiography, Ramón y Cajal writes: "During the year 1896 my activity rose to another peak like that of 1890, running feverishly through various divergent channels and expanding in some cases subjects already taken up. . . . In the later months of the year I frequently turned with new ardour to matters which I had studied before; but this time I made use by preference of the valuable method of Ehrlich. . . . As is well known, this procedure has the inestimable value of staining the nerve fibres and cells in vivo, or immediately after death, so that they stand out vigorously with a strong blue colour. Unfortunately the vital reaction of Ehrlich is so delicate and ephemeral that almost all fixing agents, and of course, alcohol, decolorize it. It is true that the use of the new fixative, ammonium molybdate, introduced into the technique by A. Bethe, made possible the cutting of sections with the microtome, though with considerable inconvenience; but, with the exception of a few interesting experiments of Dogiel on the cerebellum of birds, no one had succeeded in obtaining, either by sectioning or by the examination of macerated pieces, instructive preparations of the central organs (cerebellum, cerebrum, spinal cord, etc.) of mammals. I proposed at any cost to examine the structure of the spinal cord, the cerebellum, the cerebrum, the hippocampus, and other organs, by the methylene blue method, not only in the lower vertebrates but also in mammals. And, in fact, after several attempts, which led me to modify Bethe’s method of fixation, I secured regularly sections which showed the organizations of these regions pretty well. It was not only the stimulus of scientific curiosity which led me to study Ehrlich's technique thoroughly, but there entered largely into my determination the desire, nay more, the urgent necessity to check through the revelations of a method which colours the cells and fibres while almost alive, the very clear and decisive, but somewhat capricious pictures produced by the method of Golgi. For, although most scientists accepted with complete confidence the very clear images of silver chromate, there were sceptics who suggested the possibility that some arrangements were artifacts, that is metallic deposits which did not correspond with preexistent structures. It was therefore, absolutely necessary to show to everybody clear and decisive images, both of the spines on the dendrites and of other morphological features which I had discovered, by the use of technical methods entirely different from that of Golgi. It was to this end that I directed persistent efforts at the close of 1896 and for almost the whole of 1897, during which time I made use almost exclusively of the methylene blue method of Ehrlich. My efforts, which were crowned with complete success, were varied, one turning upon the collateral spines, which had been denied, another concerning the neurons in the molecular layer of the cerebral cortex, and finally, the most extensive and important embracing the cerebellum, the cerebral cortex, the hippocampus, the spinal cord, etc. . . . . In the most extensive and comprehensive paper [offered here], which was adorned with several phototypes, I succeeded in establishing, without the least possible doubt, the preexistence in the adult (rabbit, cat, dog, frog, and others) of the [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        JUDE THE OBSCURE

      1896 - With an Etching by H. Macbeth-Raeburn and a Map of Wessex. (London:) James R. Osgood, McIlvaine & Co., (1896). Original dark blue-green cloth with monogram device in gilt. First Edition of Hardy's last great novel, issued as Vol. VIII of "The Wessex Novels." Titled HEARTS INSURGENT at the time of its serial appearance, the book was ahead of its time; the depiction of Jude and his cousin Sue settling down together and having two children (though unmarried) was too much for the 1890s public. After JUDE (and due in part to the outcry over it), Hardy was to spend his remaining 30+ years writing only verse.~In this copy, the last pages of chapters are numbered only in gatherings "B" plus "E"-through-"H". Some copies have such pages numbered in "A" through "H", but in most copies, as here, some but not all of the first eight gatherings have numbered pages, presumably as later sheets were gradually altered to conform to the latter part of the book (they are never numbered in gatherings "I" onward).~This is a very good-plus copy, perhaps near-fine (spine cloth slightly wrinkled, a touch of wear at the corners, endpapers slightly cracked). Purdy pp 86-91. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
